I use royal on all of my cookies. I usually use vanilla flavoring, but have tried others. Everyone thinks it taste great.

I use Toba Garrett's glace icing and I love it! It has a slightly shiny finish when it dries and I think it taste's better than royal icing. I don't have the recipe with me (I'm at work) or I'd post it, but it's just 10X sugar, milk, corn syrup and flavoring. To use it for outlining, you just add a few more tablespoons of sugar.

I used Wilton's recipe. It dries nice, but not stiff hard. It is VERY tasty! If you don't know which one it is I can post it.

Yes, it is. I used it a couple of times and was VERY pleased with it. Its only a couple of ingredients and it works really well.

The instruction say to thin it to fill in areas. I just use the whole thing nice and thick and pipe it into the cookies.

I also use Toba Garret's recipes. My sister bought me her cake book and my husband bought me the cookie book - I absolutely love them and I use the same cookie icing and also her royal ice. I'm always looking at the pictures to get the scroll work just right.

Saborita: Corn syrup is made by "Karo" or it could also be made by the store they are being sold at. Or generic brand.

Here is a link to their products so you can learn more.

I actually use fondant on my cookies. In the past I always used Royal Icing, but did a "test" with fondant in my office and everyone like the fondant best.

I use the same cookie cutter to use the fondant and use piping gel as the glue. I do still use the royal icing to outline and decorate the fondant.
